“Leave you inhibitions at the door!”
Reviewed July 9, 2014

Initially, with all the door locking and buzzing on opening, it did feel a tad "prison like" as we entered the room.

I was sharing with a colleague for a conference and it was very embarrassing that the only thing that separated us while showering was a clear glass window! We had to discretely look away while one bathed, taking it in turns to hide our modesty. So be warned if you are sharing with someone not so close as a partner…

Another word of warning, the mosquitos. Located close to lots of slow flowing water, meant the first night we were eaten alive by darn bugs. So bring your Anti Brum anti mosquito spray with you.

The breakfast was good, as was the free WIFI in the room. The lobby area was clean and with people packed in to watch the football, had a nice friendly atmosphere.

The hotel smelled new and was definitely very clean. Worth what we paid, but wish we had known the bathroom situation so we could have booked single rooms.

Brand new hotel, so all the furniture etc. was new. We had a good room with everything we needed in the room. I found the beds comfortable, the shower was excellent, the bathroom area was small but adequate. Breakfast was plentiful and had a good variety of food. There is a self serve bar for drinks and a large screen tv. There are two restaurants nearby, one next door. Bike hire is available and there is a bike track to the city that passes by the front of the hotel. There is a regular bus service to the city and busses comes frequently and get to the city in about 10 minutes.The staff were very friendly and helpful at all times.Good hotel that I would stay in again.

As hinted elsewhere this is a very new hotel, we found it excellent value for the money. The hotel is about a 20 minute walk from the town centre, but there are regular buses from outside the hotel, and bikes can be hired if wanted. The hotel is surrounded by forest with walking paths, so a late evening or early morning walk is possible.
The staff deserve a special mention - I was taken ill on the morning of our departure, but the staff were fantastic, calling an ambulance immediately and sorting out any problems, besides reserving us a room for the following night - which we needed.
Parking (important for us) is 5 euros per day for those staying.

Brand new hotel, bar has no licence yet so no alcohol. Breakfast is good basic continental style, no hot food.
Staff helpful and friendly, rooms are basic...hard lino floors, wooden pine furniture, and the beds are all memory foam which you have to fight to get out of, but being new its all very clean and bright.
Equestrian centre next door so you get to see horses trotting about at breakfast which is nice, 2 restaurants adjacent offer good food, and there is bike rental available.
About 80 euro per night inc
breakfast.
Overall good but basic

A thirty minute walk from the center of Utrecht, Star Lodge is a nice and clean hotel with a warm welcome, cheap parking spots, ecological equipments and an elegant design. It is situated near two restaurants and a riding school, is not far from highways but very quiet.
